Stayed here for 1 night in March 2015, very small but lively pub/hotel. Rooms were small but had a lovely old feel to them and that's part of the atmosphere there! Only thing was it was close to a main road so a bit of traffic noise. Breakfast was lovely in the morning and even met Terry Wogan who was... More

I booked this hotel just on price, location and free car parking. Couldn't beat it anywhere. Location was amazing with just a 10 minute walk to the Bull Ring. On arrival we were greated by a very friendly gent who showed us around the maze of rooms and corridors - all olde-worldly, wibbly wobbly walls and floors. Room itself was... More

Thanks for your feedback it is appreciated. Sorry you found it noisy at night and thanks for being understanding. Our rooms round the back are quieter so do book one of them if you decide to come back. The spooky story did make us laugh, strange things do happen at night and it's not just to us it seems! Look...

We stayed for one night while in town for a gig and would happily recommend The Old Crown to anyone. Its close proximity to Birmingham's city centre and the Bullring Shipping Centre make it an ideal choice for savvy shoppers seeking somewhere for an overnight stay. Our room was comfortable and well-furnished and, although we didn't opt for an en-suite,... More

I chose the Old Crown because it was easy access from the airport, right near the Bullring and also the coach station. It looked unique with plenty of character, as well as having lots of good reviews. We were not disappointed: the staff were friendly and helpful, the en-suite room had everything we needed and was furnished in character with... More

We stayed for a night after a trip to the theatre, it is in a great location, the room was well furnished and the bathroom was very clean and modern. Breakfast was very good and included in the room price. Also had a good selection of real ales available.

Me and my fiancé stopped here to watch a band at the 02 Academy. For the price that we paid (half the price of any other accommodation in the area) we really could not complain. The room was very basic but was clean and the bed was nice and comfy. We didn't have any noise problems and also had breakfast... More
